Everyone’s Love Island obsession manifests differently - but for the most part, it's accompanied by chocolate.
For some, their involvement in the modern TV phenomenon that is Love Island constitutes of little more than ranting endlessly about what mindless, toxic crap it is. To those people, I say, ‘Mate, if you hate it do much then why are you still talking about it all the time?’
For others, they take their analysis to an intellectual level, using the shows dramz to illustrate wider points about social mores and the dynamics that inevitably emerge in group situations.
For me, I cannot commit to the sheer volume of viewing hours required for Love Island viewership, however, I can’t bear to be left out of the whole entire internet for weeks on end in the summer.
So what I’ve opted for instead of direct Love Island consumption is an avid consumption of Love Island commentary.
I couldn’t tell you much about specific players (bar Maura obvs) but I’m keeping up with the gist a via the wonderful people doing the Lord’s work on social media and gifting us up to the minute commentary and interpretations of the islanders every move.
Particular faves among the Love Island pundits have to be @FionnualaJay, @EmerTheScreamer, @karlakartistry and a big shout-out to the My Pod On Paper gang who do a nightly unpacking of the Villa with a rotating crew of Love Island correspondents.
Would hundy recommend to a friend and makes the perfect listening while making this moreish FroYo sundae.
After all, It is what it is!
Instant FroYo Snickers Sundae
For the Froyo:
- 3 frozen bananas, sliced
- 250g Greek yoghurt (or plain Alpro yoghurt to make it vegan)
- 200g smooth peanut butter
- For the caramel:
- 115g cashew butter
- 70ml maple syrup
- 30ml coconut oil, melted
- sea salt flakes
For the Chocolate:
- 60ml coconut oil, melted
- 30g cacao powder
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- Pinch of salt
- 50g roasted peanuts, to serve
Place the sliced frozen banana, the yoghurt and the peanut butter in a food processor and blend until completely smooth, scraping down the sides if needed. Pour into a Tupperware container and place in the freezer while you make the toppings (you can also make the caramel and chocolate sauce in advance).
In two small bowls, whisk together the caramel ingredients and the chocolate ingredients. Then scoop the FroYo into bowls and top with the caramel and chocolate and scatter peanuts over each.
*Note: If freezing for later, cover with a lid or cling film, allow to soften at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before serving.
